First timer - looking for a All-inclusive resort

I was planning to go to Riviera Mayan with my wife (6th Anniversary) and then this Swine Flu Outbreak happened. A friend of mine suggested Naples; never thought of Florida (but always a first time!) Does anyone know if Naples has any AI-type resorts? If not, any suggestion on where to stay? We love the beach, so, beach-front location is key. However, it looks like (from other postings) that it's pretty expensive; looking for something affordable (4-star Carribbean AI Resorts).

Thanks!

Hi Tatolicious,

I understand your reservation about going to Mexico right now. The swine flu outbreak is very unfortunate. I just got back a month go from Playa del Carmen and it was so awesome!

Unfortunately, there aren't any AI's in Naples. Also, there is only a handful of beachfront hotels.

They are, the Ritz Carlton Beach Resort, LaPlaya Resort, Vanderbilt Beach Resort, The Edgwater Resort and Naples Beach Hotel. The Naples Grande is beach view because mangroves separate it from the beach. There is a boardwalk over the mangroves to take you to the beach. You can walk it (about 1/2 mile) or take the tram.

Some of these resorts may seem expensive but you can usually get great rates off season. If you are planning to go between now and October, you can probably get a great rate. I've seen rates at the Ritz Beach Resort for 150.00 per night in July. That's pretty awesome!

The Ritz has a golf resort about 2 miles west of the beach resort and you can use all the amenities of the beach resort and they offer a shuttle to take you to and from the beach. The golf resort is always less expensive so that could be an option for you.

If none of these beach front resorts work, Bellasera is a very nice hotel and they offer free shuttle to the beach. You would be very close to downtown/old naples (Fifth Avenue South & Third Street South)and you probably wouldn't even need a rental car since you can walk to many restaurants, pubs, shops and galleries.

Thanks! That's awesome! Tempted to visit Naples, though, there is a great deal to Cuba as well. If not this time, hopefully soon.

Take care.
